Build frictionless customer experiences, optimize manufacturing processes, accelerate digital marketing campaigns, and more. No machine learning expertise is required.

Check out what's new with Azure AI at Build

Customization to your scenario

Set your model to perceive a particular object for your use case.

Intuitive model creation

Easily build your image identifier model using the simple interface.

Flexible deployment

Run AI Custom Vision in the cloud or on the edge in containers.

Built-in security

Rely on enterprise-grade security and privacy for your data and any trained models.

Achieve accuracy without the complexity

Start training your computer vision model by simply uploading and labeling a few images. The model tests itself on these and continually improves precision through a feedback loop as you add images. To speed development, use customizable, built-in models for retail, manufacturing, and food. See how Minsur, one of the world's largest tin mines, uses AI Custom Vision for sustainable mining.

Training images in Custom Vision

Accelerate model creation

A user-friendly interface walks you through developing and deploying custom computer vision models. Then either ping the API to quickly tag images with your new computer vision model or export the model to a device to run real-time image recognition.

Deploy anywhere, from the cloud to the edge

Run your models wherever you need them and according to your unique scenario and requirements. Easily export your trained models to devices or to containers for low-latency scenarios.

Frequently asked questions

  • Azure AI Services, including AI Custom Vision, guarantees 99.9 percent availability. See SLA details.

  • Yes. Because AI Custom Vision is designed to be customized for your scenario, you need to provide the data to train your model.

  • The AI Custom Vision is optimized to quickly recognize major differences between images, so you can start prototyping your model with a small amount of data. We recommend starting with 50 images per label. Depending on the complexity of the problem and degree of accuracy required, hundreds or thousands of samples may be required for your final model.

  • You can leverage Project Trove to gather images for your projects. Project Trove is an app that connects you directly with photo takers, allowing you to collect more relevant and accurate photos for your model. Using Trove, you can post your project descriptions, outline the types of photos you are looking for, and only approve the photos that you want. Trove provides licensing and privacy frameworks, so you can collect high quality data responsibly and safely. You can sign up for Trove here.

  • It’s actually both. Use the site to access a graphical interface for labeling data and training models. Or use the AI Custom Vision SDKs to do these things.

  • AI Services offers several capabilities depending on your use case. The Computer Vision video- and image-recognition model is a good starting point if you don’t want to build your own model. Form Recognizer is optimized for document processing, AI Video Indexer for extracting advanced metadata from audio and video files, Face for facial recognition and detection, and Content Moderator for detecting unwanted text or images.
